When most people think of Cayman Islands, what comes to mind is usually basic information that’s not particularly interesting or beneficial. But there’s a lot more to Cayman Islands than just the basics.

Cayman Islands ranks very high in the list of tourist places to visit. Coming mostly from temperate countries, the typical Cayman Islands visitor wants to enjoy the warm, tropical sun plus the relaxing tropical sea breeze.

Not only that, the tourists would also like to enjoy the sights of the underwater world, enjoy the food and the culture of people.

Since some of the visitors are first-timers, it is only understandable that they have tons of questions about the islands that are not quite clear in travel brochures or books. The following are random questions (and answers) all about enjoying one?s stay at the Cayman Islands.

Does it rain in the islands?

There are two seasons here, the summer (or ?rainy? season) and the winter (or ?dry? season). Summer in the islands runs from mid-May to October, followed by ?winter? or dry season from November to April.

It is not unusual that there are brief afternoon showers in the ?summer? months. This is also true in the mornings when brief drizzles do sometimes occur.

Is it very hot?

The average temperature in the ?winter? is 75º Fahrenheit and 85º Fahrenheit in the ?summer?. In short, the temperature moves within the 70º to 90º F range throughout the year, summer or winter. (Most properties have air-conditioning units.)

Why is diving said to be so good?

First, there are no mountains and there are no rivers, so there is no run-off of water to the sea. This makes our reefs so well-developed and the sea water so clear around them, which makes for the best diving conditions.

Is everything making sense so far? If not, I’m sure that with just a little more reading, all the facts will fall into place.

We also limit fishing and outlawed anchoring. We educate the divers and do our self-policing in our dive operations.

What if I get sick?

The Cayman Islands? Health Services Complex is at George Town, Grand Cayman. It has modern equipments and facilities handled by highly trained personnel.

There is also a 24-hour hyperbaric decompression chamber available for divers and an air ambulance service for other emergencies.

Are there any beaches for nude bathing?

There are no nude beaches in the Cayman Islands. Please note that any and all forms of nudity, including topless sunbathing, are prohibited in the islands. Many business establishments also request that you wear shoes and appropriate clothes before entering.

Are there activities for children?

As a matter of fact, there are many. They will enjoy the various water sports like banana boats, two-person parasailing, or discovering the beautiful marine world through snorkeling and swimming.

Adolescents over 12 years can also learn to dive. There are also submarines and other submersibles to view our amazing underwater reefs. Don?t miss the stingray city with tame southern stingrays in their natural habitats.
